What? AI gunners can be turned off? Does it have a default key? What is the key? Or is it in the settings?

Aircraft specific? Any idea how that happened?

After this update, before starting the game , a window with " Integrated GPU detected.Switching to GPU selected for better performance." appeared . And it actually made it worse.From 40+ frames,after this it came to 20- . If anyone knows something about this issue and may tell me,I would appreciate it. :)s

how do you "turn off" gunners?

 

There is no default button, you need to assign one by yourself.

I still havent found out why you can no longer

drop bombs/rockets/torpedoes with bombers

while in gunners view?

 

after losing this feature bombers (especialy german ones) have become a complete stupidity to play.

they cant take much damage from fighters (can kill you in just one quick run), or even attack aircraft and other (US/UK) bombers.

the AI gunners are useless as always, even when upgraded to maximum,

and the bomber sight view is practically nothing  more than an obstacle while switching views.

i could go on about climb rate and carrying capabilities etc,...

but the point is that bombers, especially the poorly defended germans, have become just a XP fodder for other players.

Yay! I was waiting for that fix a loooooooooong time! Thanks a lot! :good:

 

Only thing I noticed now while testing is that on very angled surfaces (e.g. T-34 sloped hull side), when switching to double sided the decal gets stretched somewhat. So flat on the surface (vertical to surface) it's distorted, but seen from the side (with surface sloped), it actually appears correct, so that's actually ok.

Yeah go to menu, controls, basic and scroll to the bottom and bind the "Toggle Gunners" to a key.

from 3 o 4 days (I play only tanks arcade) when in game I see EVER a strange effect. all the time in battle I always see the outline of the wagon that very disturbs the vision. shadows and strange perspectives (all white or all black) which cover the normal course of the battle. These effects greatly disturb the unfolding of the battle.

That's strange, i had flickering with the clouds on max settings, i think it happened when tabbing out and in to the game.

With ''causing graphical freeze'' do you mean the graphics driver crashing then recovering? Because that has happened to me some times when changing view.

Edit - still have flickering clouds some times

Hi I appear to be having problems with this update?
Disk read/write error. Would you like to try again?
C:\WarThunder\content\pkg_main\respkg_main_aircrafts\g8n.dxp.bin
could anyone tell me what I need to do to fix?

Add War Thunder directory to the exception list on your anti virus program and try again.

Will the freezing fixes apply to Macs as well? And will we get compensated premium time? Ive not been able to play for weeks and lost all me premium, I think it would be reasonable to have compensation.
